GE HealthCare has received US FDA 510(k) clearance of its Portrait VSM vital signs monitor, which provides clinicians with an accurate view of patient vital signs to support timely clinical decisions.

With wireless connectivity and seamless EMR integration, the portable Portrait VSM is designed with user workflow in mind, providing customized Early Warning Scores (EWS) and enabling care teams to focus on patient care by automating routine tasks.

Building on GE HealthCare’s family of Portrait monitoring solutions, Portrait VSM can connect to the latest version of Portrait Mobile, the wireless and portable continuous monitoring solution, to seamlessly integrate patient data into a unified workflow while ensuring patient mobility. With a single click of the barcode scanner, Portrait VSM automatically imports patient demographics and a snapshot of the patient’s continuously monitored data – respiratory rate, oxygen saturation and pulse rate – from Portrait Mobile. This workflow streamlines the clinical rounding process and reduces the steps required to capture and record a complete set of vital signs.
